Basically I was planning on adding a Rock Raiders United Logo of some sort right below level 25 in my Custom Map Slots Mod (and my Ultimate Map Pack Mod as well) to separate the Original Levels from the Custom Levels. I thought it would be a great thing to have in there but, I was having trouble finding a way to make it blend in correctly with the level select screen. So after some thinking, I decided that instead of simply asking for help I would make a little contest out of it so anyone in the RRU Community could contribute! MUCH more interesting this way don't you think? There will also be a contest to find the best replacement for the Locked level images (Level"xx"G). The Reason for this is since the Level images take priority over the background, (Excluding the color Black, which is automatically ignored) if I take out all the caverns from the Custom Map Area of the Levelpick image It will allow me to more freely position the Custom Maps on the Level Select screen,but it cause the current Level(xx)G images to show incorrectly as seen in the screenshot below.
Contest Details and Entry Rules.
- There will be 3 separate Entry types as follows;
- Logo (Header)
- Logo (Footer)
- Level(xx)G Image: That's the picture you see when a level is not yet unlocked.
Rules and Requirements;
- One Entry of each type Per Person.
- All Entries should be in Bitmap or Jpeg Format.
- Entry types 1 & 2 must be EXACTLY 640 Pixels Wide and preferably no more than 200 tall
- Type 3 Entries I would Prefer be of equal height and width.
- For optimal Resize quality Type 3 entries should be no less than 350 square pixels and no more than 750 square pixels. (350 by 350 through 750 by 750)
In other words so it can be easily resized to fit a variety of custom level images. Entries must be submitted by end of Deadline (EST Timezone)
Entries should be Named to fit the following template:
Entry(x) - by (RRU Member Name)
The x should be the entry type. 1, 2, or 3.
- Entries of the third type should not contain any monster, vehicles, buildings, or anything else that would give it a specific theme that might not match certain custom maps.
- Entries must be no more than 10mb (shouldn't be hard)
- Entrants agree that RockRaiderWolf reserves the right to judge the winner IF there are few or no votes made in the poll( Poll will be posted after all entries have been received and displayed)
- Entrants agree that RockRaiderWolf has the right to use the submitted Image(s) in any future RockRaiderUnited related content as long as credit for the image is given to the creator of the Image.
- Entrant agrees that they did not steal the image from someone else. ( Unless RockRaidersUnited.org or whoever has the right to the image, does not object to it being used. I will accept Images containing the logo found at the top of the RRU website.)
Once the final submission deadline is reached I will re-upload all the entries into a gallery which I will link to below and then I will add a Poll where the RRU Community can vote for the winners!
First Place Prize for each Entry Category is as follows:
- Image is used in my mod as the Header that separates the Original Levels and the Custom Levels.
- Image is used in my mod as the Footer that will be shown below the Custom Levels at the bottom of the level selection screen.
- Image is used in my mod as the new Level(x)G image for all the RRU Custom Levels.
All three winners will also be given the chance to work with me to make their own Idea for a Custom Level, if they wish it. It's not like I'm famous so if they already know how my help may not be needed.
Runner ups for each Category will be listed and they will also receive the following gag prizes:
- 1st runner up will get their very own RockWolf Tool Store Guarding Canine!
- An awesome Rideable Slimy Slug!
- Your very own Rock Whale! (Food supply not included)
